Special Counsel Robert Mueller “hasn’t presented any evidence of where he is in his investigation” and “should be up on the Hill testifying,” Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said Thursday.
Appearing on Tucker Carlson Tonight, Fitton discussed the possible end date of an ongoing probe into alleged collusion between Russia and the 2016 Trump presidential campaign, saying there is no clear end in sight - and that Mueller seems to be the one actually running the Justice Department and Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) in this matter:
“I don’t know what Mueller’s doing; he hasn’t presented any information about where he is in his investigation. Frankly, he should be up on the Hill testifying, since he seems to be the one running the Justice Department and the FBI on this important matter.”
Fitton said it’s especially important Mueller testify, because FBI Director Christopher Wray and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein seem unware of Americans’ concerns about FBI and Justice Department leadership:
“Well, you know, they seem, I think, oblivious to the concerns Americans have about the credibility of the leadership of the Justice Department and the FBI.”
Fitton also questioned FBI Director Wray’s response to the Inspector General’s (IG) report, arguing that Wray “doesn’t seem to think the IG report was even about the FBI,” even though the leadership of the FBI was so “severely ethically comprised”:
“Certainly director Wray doesn’t seem to think the IG report was even about the FBI; he keeps on thinking it wasn’t about the institution of the FBI, but some people who happen to work there when, in fact, it was the leadership of the FBI that was so severely ethically comprised during the Obama administration, well into the Trump administration.”
